Borders


BORDERS tells the story of two men, one Israeli and one Palestinian, who fall in love during the Second Intifada in the early 2000s.

Adapted from the 2006 Israeli film The Bubble by Eytan Fox and Gal Uchovsky, this daring new musical examines the borders we construct within society and within ourselves.  Romantic and provocative, BORDERS pulses with energy, urgency, and hope for a more peaceful world.

BORDERS has been developed/incubated at the BMI Musical Theatre Workshop, the Dramatists Guild Foundation Fellowship, Goodspeed Musicals, and New York Theatre Barn. 


EXPRESS

an immersive musical

An original immersive musical that tells the story of one woman's life in NYC through transformative moments taking place in the subway in 1946, 1964, and 1992, as remembered by her daughter and grandchild in October 2001.  The score contains music inspired by the eras spanned in the show, from Golden-Era musical theatre to '60s folk and gospel to '90s pop and hip hop.  This ensemble-driven production invites the audience to experience the show from a seat on the "subway" among the performers.

EXPRESS premiered as a site-specific production at the New York Transit Museum in September 2015, was remounted there in April 2017, was presented in excerpted form in Theatre Now New York's Sound Bites 4.0 in May 2017, and was expanded and further developed at New York Film Academy's New Work Series in July-August 2017.
